Retratos do ano de 2021

No arquivo do “National Geographic” encontram-se milhares de fotografias que retratam, a resiliência humana, num 2021 marcado pela pandemia e pela crise climática, e são também uma homenagem ao trabalho destes fotógrafos. 

Deixamos-vos aqui três delas…

In South Jakarta’s Manggarai village, teacher Erdah Desiana at Elementary School No. 1 leads a small group of students. This school was one of hundreds around Jakarta that restarted in-person classes with stringent health protocols. Schools were open three days a week with half the students present one day and the other half there the next. Students at home attended via video-conference. Outbreaks of COVID-19 were still plaguing Indonesia, but the government pushed ahead with in-person school, arguing that the educational benefits outweighed the risks. PHOTOGRAPH BY MUHAMMAD FADLI

Spaced out across the Tel Aviv opera house, a masked audience takes in a revue by the Israeli Opera’s sopranos. By the middle of March, Israel had vaccinated more than half its citizens—a world first that sharply drove down its case counts. The country also rolled out a “green pass” system for fully vaccinated or recovered Israelis. From late April to late June, Israel had an average of fewer than 100 new COVID-19 cases a day—until the arrival of the more contagious Delta variant, which fueled a third wave of cases. PHOTOGRAPH BY DAN BALILTY

Even in bleak years, conservationists are bright spots. They work to preserve wild places, protect cultural heritage sites, defend threatened species. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Virunga National Park rangers pioneered the care of orphaned mountain gorillas. Photographer Brent Stirton was there in 2007 when ranger Andre Bauma found an infant gorilla clinging to her dead mother. He named the orphan Ndakasi—and would be her lifelong caregiver. The rangers built, and still run, an orphanage in Virunga for the gorillas. Stirton visited regularly. He was there in September when Ndakasi, dying of an undiagnosed illness, crawled into Bauma’s arms. Via Getty Images PHOTOGRAPH BY BRENT STIRTON

    desejo que o ano 2022 traga a todos os portugueses, um ministro de educação para Portugal que seja sério, justo, e principalmente, que seja um técnico competente conhecedor dos dossiers, assertivo e faça a reforma na educação que Portugal Digital moderno precisa para se juntar ao seio das nações mais evoluídas do mundo, deixando para trás a tacanhez e o provincianismo que tem demonstrado depois da Revolução por todos os ministros que passaram pelo ministério.

  1. It makes the education reform that modern Digital Portugal needs to join the world’s most developed nations, leaving behind the narrow-mindedness and provincialism shown by all ministers since the Revolution.
